A new developer diary published by Victory Games indicates that the team don’t seem to think very much of Command & Conquer 4, the last game in the series that they’ve been tasked with rebooting.
“The first thing we said was, we need to kind of wash the stain of C&C 4 away,” said lead designer Samuel Bass to GameInformer.
“To do that, you really have to get back to your roots, back to what it was made your fans your fans in the first place.”
Bass also explained that those fans were after elements such as base construction “that doesn’t feel like a chore; harvesting that doesn’t require your full attention; and a focus on fast action and lots of viable strategies”.
The new Command & Conquer is set to be a F2P affair powered by the Frostbite engine. Here’s an early preview video.
